New Try at Knife Handle

I've just finished another knife handle. It's a plain vegetable knife from the supermarket but this time it's all about the handle. Compared to previous ones this one is quite fancy. It has a wooden part and an epoxy part. Also known as Micarta in the business, I made this myself: layers of fabric soaked in epoxy create a wonderful and tough handle material, semi translucent like ivory or bone. Another first is the brass pin in the shape of a bullseye, layered brass and red plastic tubes fused together with epoxy. Hope you enjoy it.
